Creationist Wisdom #1,026: Darwinists Are Afraid

Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears in the Daily News of Batavia, New York. It’s titled Debating Creation or evolution. They don’t seem to have a comments feature.

Because the writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote him by using his full name. We found a registered nurse with his name, but we’re not sure it’s the same man — and that wouldn’t qualify for full name treatment anyway. The writer’s first name is John. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary, some bold font for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]. Here we go!

This is in response to the column by Jerry Moore (“The evolution of enlightenment,” Nov. 26, 2019). [We found it: Jerry Moore: The evolution of enlightenment .] Mr. Moore makes a number of claims in his article, taking for granted that evolution is a fact, backed up by science.

That guy is obviously a fool! John says:

Mr. Moore completely fails to mention that Evolution is a theory (and not even a scientific theory), which has not been proven. [Gasp!] It cannot be proven until there is evidence of one kind of creature evolving into a different kind of creature. [Like Dracula.] To date, there has been no such observation. There have been many observations of new species forming, and some rapidly, but they are still the same type of creatures – new species, not brand new creatures. [John is dancing the micro-macro mambo.] This is not evidence for molecules to man evolution. It is, however, what the theory of Creation predicts and expects.

Great, huh? Then John tells us:

The theories of Evolution and Creation are in the same boat, as both come from a worldview. In this case, the worldviews are in direct opposition to one another. The theory of Evolution is not more scientific than the theory of Creation, and the theory of Creation is not more religious than the theory of Evolution. Both theories look at the same evidence, but end up at different conclusions based on their starting presuppositions, which are based directly on the worldview. Neither can go back in time to see exactly what happened.

Yup — two theories, both struggling with the same evidence. John continues:

Mr Moore also states that science and religion (the Bible) are not compatible. However, if God created the world and the universe, which He did [Yeah!], it would be expected that evidence of this would be found as we study the world around us.

So where’s the evidence? Let’s read on:

While such theories cannot be proven scientifically, the scientific method can be applied to examine the evidence regarding the past that we do find. Whatever field one looks at, the evidence does line up with what one would expect to find based on what is recorded in the Bible.

Yes, all the evidence lines up with the bible — young Earth, flat Earth, etc. Another excerpt:

That more and more people seem to be abandoning a belief in creation, stems not so much from any evidence upholding evolution, but is a direct result of evolution being taught exclusively in the schools. [Yeah!] In fact, not only is teaching creation side-by-side with evolution forbidden in our schools, teaching anything that points out the weaknesses in the theory of Evolution is also forbidden. [Oh, how unfair!] This is certainly contrary to the scientific method which demands that theories be challenged so that a theory can be proven false, if indeed the theory is false: to remain, the theory must stand up to any and all scrutiny. This brings evolution more into the realm of religion – its dogma must not be challenged for any reason.

John is right — evolution is a dogmatic religion! Here’s more:

If evolution is so obviously true and creation so obviously a myth, let them be taught side by side and let evolution destroy creation once and for all. This, obviously, is never going to happen.

The Darwinists are afraid! And now we come to the end:

Creation is not false, and stands up to scrutiny better than evolution. [I]f taught side by side, creation will destroy evolution. [Hee hee!] That is why every effort is being made to keep creation from being taught along with evolution.

You can’t fool John, dear reader. He knows you’re afraid, and that’s why you struggle so desperately to keep creationism out of the public schools. But now, thanks to John’s letter, the whole world knows, and Darwinism is doomed!

  1. “It cannot be proven until there is evidence of one kind of creature evolving into a different kind of creature.”
    And fortunately such evidence never will be found, because “kind” carefully remains undefined. Such a relief for creacrappers!

    “Mr Moore also states that science and religion (the Bible) are not compatible.”
    No, Bye Bye Johnny, Mr. Moore didn’t. He wrote two things:

    1. “empirical research has shown religious ideology to be wrong time and again throughout history.”
    2. “Biblical stories ….. don’t provide an accurate picture of our history as a species.”

    It’s Jerry Coyne who states it – it’s the title of his second book.

    “creation will destroy evolution”
    Which creation, Bye Bye Johnny? YEC? OEC? With or without Bible quotes? Flat Earth? Come back when you creacrappers have reached some kind of consensus, then we may have something to talk about.

    Notice how much emotion plays into this – I don’t want to be animal. I don’t want have come from pond scum. I want to be created in a god’s image. It is pick your ancestors day – do you want to be a puppet or not?

    This letter could have been written by Ol Hambo himself. It is creepy and disheartening to see parroting AIG propaganda. It is heartening to some extent to look at some of the numbers that Mr. Moore presents that change (even though at a glacial pace) is taking place in the right direction.

    “The theories of Evolution and Creation are in the same boat…”

    John thinks all theories are equal, but some are more equal than others.

    Here’s my theory about John: John has a small penis and a small brain. Got sand kicked in his face a lot as a kid by bigger boys. Has a massive crush on Ken Ham, but don’t call John gay. (Of course, the opposite theory could just as well be true: John has a large penis; large brain; is well-buffed; thinks for himself, etc).

    But some theories are more equal than others.

  5. Dear Curmudge: Do you have a pref for newspapers that do not have comment sections? That’s all you seem to display anymore. I prefer the newspapers with comments as I like to both peruse the comments already submitted and submit my own. Whaddya think?

  6. Hardrada asks: “Do you have a pref for newspapers that do not have comment sections?”

    Creationist material isn’t as abundant as it used to be. These days, it seems that a lot of creationist letters-to-the-editor are in small town newspapers, and they often have no comments section.

  7. I wonder if John is also confused about the theory that he’s a collection of molecules that are subject to the laws of chemistry and physics..

  8. @beastwood No, sir, he’s not at all confused. It’s in the Bible, don’t you know.
